    Hi paolo220,

    Under $50, this one is the best---
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152041

    It is a 600w, 80+ Bronze Certified Power Supply from RAIDMax. It is 87% efficient which is good for the price it bears. It has two 12V rails delivering 22A on each. I think this PSU will run your PC without any problems as long as you don't Crossfire it.

    Please do not suggest crappy power supplys. Raidmax is one of the worst on the market.

    LOL^
    Go with the Corsair PSU Rick_Criswell suggested...
  7. This PSU is leagues ahead of the Raidmax, while under $50:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371029

    It can power a 6870, but you will have to use a Pigtail cable for the extra 6-pin PEG connector.

    Or go with the 520w: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030

    I would go with a Neo Eco over the Corsair CX, CX is not Corsair's best line, and the Neo Eco is made by Seasonic (one of, it not the best)

    OEM is CWT,and i am not a big fan of low end CWT products,mostly they are junk.
    Enermax is way better.

    no way near smartness kid.you should study about power supplies and their manufacturers or else know your role and shut your mouth.first learn then come.
    no offence,just the right suggestion.

    thanks for the info but i never said that all CWT power supplies are junk(corsair HX series is one of the best),low end CWT units are not good but most of the times almost every enermax unit is exceptionally good.

    I'm pretty sure you missed getting the info I was trying to convey
    The Enermax that you reccomended is built on the same low end CWT platform as the Corsair CX, lacks APFC, uses a split rail design and ,with the current promo's on the CX500, cost's more for a lower wattage unit, it is certainly not better than the CX

    Somebody once said ;
    "you should study about power supplies and their manufacturers or else know your role and shut your mouth"
    Kind of harsh, but I guess it's good advice

    can't really say anything here.just PM'd you.

    Thanks you handled that much better than I probably would have. Been banned twice already from similar stuff.

    Is this enough power for my rig?
  16. Just enough. But it does not have Active power correction as Delluser stated.
    For a $5 dollar difference after rebate I would really suggest the Corsair. It has 48 more watts on the 12v rail,which is where most of the power draw will be.

    What kind of corsair what model
  18. Unolocogringo said:


    This is 54 in total with the 10% off discount and if you do the rebate, it will be 44 dollars. Best you can get at this time.
  19. If you can't get that Corsair one, get this.

    I heard cooler master doesn't make bad power supplies^.

    Bad branded power supplies are like fireworks. They start smoking a bit, then you hear a loud firecracker noise coming from your computer that wakes you up in the middle of the night. Then you come to see your power supply blown up, caught on fire and your whole new nice rig is in flames.
  20. Stick with the Corsair CX500 watt V2 if at all possible.
    I would stay clear of the Cooler Master PSU...

    Forget about the cooler master power supply. Just get that Corsair one. Remember, the power supply is the first part you do not want to be cheap on. It is important to throw in the best money into this. It is the heart of your computer. Just go with this Corsair.
